Google GlassI am not a Google Glass guy. May never be but if there is just one thing I have learned all these many years is that you should never say never.

For those of you who are part of the wearable Technorati and are looking for the next great thing maybe the updates to Google Glass that The Verge is reporting are for you.

Google is closing out 2013 in a big way for Google Glass users. December’s monthly software update adds several popular feature requests, including a new wink gesture for taking photos, full Hangouts support, and video uploading to YouTube. Google is also introducing a new way of securing Glass that it says is equivalent to a smartphone’s lock screen. Instead of entering a PIN (or pattern, as Android users are accustomed to), you can now choose to unlock Glass with a “secret Google handshake” that’s basically a sequence of taps and swipes.

I was just listening to Bob Dylan sing “Don’t want to wink at anybody, don’t want to be winked at” (total coincidence, honest, from Slow Train Coming CD, track “Do Right To Me Baby”). I guess Bob wouldn’t like the new world order of the wink pic, huh?

What about you?

  • I’d definitely try such glasses. Google is as usually up to scratch.
